Top 10 Best Selling Cars of All Time

5. Ford Escort: 20M units sold

Despite being discontinued back in 2000, the European Ford Escort still takes fifth place as a small, fuel-efficient car originally sold in England in 1967 as a 1968 model. Its popularity in England allowed for six generations of European Escorts with each update offering more options and a larger engine. It’s worth mentioning that the American Escort isn’t counted here, because it wasn’t related to the European model.

    Does the old aircooled Beetle still have the #1 title for single-platform sales, as opposed to nameplate sales?

    Someone built this list on Wikipedia and google – the chevy Silverado, chevy bel air, and ford Taurus didn’t even make the list, and I know without a shadow of a doubt all three outsold some of the ones on this list.

    In regards to the other comments: This list includes cars from around the world and many of the cars you guys have listed were not sold world-wide. Chevy II/Nova, Ford Mustang, Ford Falcon, Ford Taurus were all good sellers but I doubt if they would make the top 20 list. Olds Cutlass, Chevy Malibu, and Ford Galaxie/LTD easily outsold the Nova, Mustang, etc.. Chevy Silverado probably makes it in the top 20. There could easily be a few other foreign cars to round out the top 20, most likely a Fiat, Renault, Opel, and/or Nissan models
